Transforming a former warehouse into an all-in-one art gallery, studio, bar and weekend hang-out, the artist Renato Larini is the creative mind behind Espaço Zebra, a welcoming, eclectic space – something along the lines of cycle-centric Tag & Juice, or Lapa's Serralharia – that he runs with his partner Néli Pereira in the heart of Bixiga.
Drop in on Friday night, or on a Saturday afternoon-into-evening, for beers and an ever-changing lineup of homemade bar snacks. Take a moment to rummage in the second-hand books and clothes that are all part of the furniture at Zebra, and don't miss the chance to peruse Larini’s artworks in the form of prints, photographs and collages on the walls. The talented artist also does a fine line in artesanal wooden furniture, dreamed up on a case-by-case basis and made from salvaged boxes of Norwegian salt cod.
